“In the 17th century came the crushing blow which destroyed the beauty of all Breviary hymns. Pope Urban VIII (d. 1644) was a Humanist. In a fatal moment he saw that the hymns do not all conform to the rules of classical prosody.”
— Fr. Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)

“Pleni sunt coeli et terra gloria tua.”
published 24 October 2016 by Jeff Ostrowski

Seeing the beautiful colors, I would always recall the SANCTUS: Pleni sunt caeli et terra gloria tua.
